Abstract

Research has shown that the addition of multimedia into education improves learning. Particularly in life-sciences, multimedia has shown to be beneficial because it provides visualization of concepts that are difficult to envision. Tutorial videos were implemented in the WPI introductory biology laboratories with the intention of helping to improve material retention. It was concluded that although the video protocols were appreciated and utilized by students, it cannot be determined whether the presence of the videos effectively increased student comprehension.
